Engulfing Indicator for MT4 Trading Candlestick Pattern

The Engulfing is a useful forex indicator based on candlestick patterns analysis. To be precise, this indicator detects on the charts a specific candlestick pattern called “Engulfing Candle Pattern”. It may be bullish engulfing or bearish engulfing, whenever such a signal is detected the indicator draws red or blue arrow pointing up or down.

The Engulfing indicator generates accurate signals on all timeframes, but we recommend to use it on the higher time frames. You can start with the H4, since the higher the timeframe used, the more accurate the signals of candle patterns and less noise.

This indicator comes with sound and text alerts. But the alert is not final and sound alert is triggered many times after the appearance of the signal. Therefore by default, sound alarm is set to false.
